I have just bought one of these,you would need this type for the stronger rivits or stainless steel,the problem with these is you dont always have room to use them.

Thanks for that link, I think we might be needing a box of them, lol. We bought a normal rivet gun with a twisting head, ideal for weird angles, but you need hydraulic hands on bigger rivets, I couldn't do the larger ones, I had to call for OH to help.

There is a firm local to us that sell rivets individually. Try looking in the yellow pages under fixings and fasteners, there might be one local to yourselves.

As far a the grease gun Eilis, for the amount you would need it you would be better to ask a friendly local garage or mechanic to grease it for you.
